Encounters with Art Event marked the opening of Yerevan: View From The Future Exhibition

October 11, 2012
On October 11 the Sasuntsi Davit Garden Gallery of the Cafesjian Center for the Arts opened its doors to present Yerevan: View From The Future exhibition to public. 

In the evening of the same day a regular event in Encounters with Art series marked the opening of the exhibition. With Yerevan: View From The Future the Cafesjian Center for the Arts continues its inter-museum cooperation project by organizing joint exhibitions with sister museums. The first exhibition in this program was Spring Motifs, organized in partnership with the Museum of Russian Art. This second exhibition was organized in partnership with Yerevan History Museum, marking the launch of 2012 Erebuni-Yerevan celebrations. 

The exhibition on view at the Cafesjian Center for the Arts presents fine and graphic artworks by renowned Armenian artists, portraying various scenes of Yerevan in the first half of 20th century, as well as photographs of modern-day Yerevan, symbolizing the progress of the city in retrospect to old Yerevan. 

“Loyal to its mission of bringing the best of the contemporary art to Armenia and presenting the best of Armenian culture to the world, the Cafesjian Center for the Arts, through such joint exhibitions presented in the Center’s state-of-the-art galleries, will encourage the public to rediscover its cultural heritage and provide its sister museums with added visibility in the international community. I am confident that this innovative collaboration with the Yerevan History Museum will make it more accessible for the art-loving community – both during this exhibition and after its closure”, stated Vahagn Marabyan, Acting Executive Director  of the Cafesjian Center for the Arts. 

“The presented works are valuable not only from an artistic but also from a historical perspective, for they represent a city that has now become history. Owing to M. Saryan, P. Terlemezyan, H. Kojoyan, S. Arakelyan and other celebrated artists, the younger generation today enjoys an opportunity to form a true idea of the Yerevan they have never seen”, noted the Director of the Yerevan History Museum, Armine Sargsyan. 

The admission to the Sasuntsi Davit Garden Gallery will be free on October 12-14. The exhibition will last till December 16, 2012.
